Beyond Being Multilingual:
Unlocking New Opportunities Through Developing Plurilingual Competence

Yet, we still observe many situations where being able to ‘speak a common language’ at times, fail to truly help speakers connect with each other on a genuine level despite active listening. This is where developing plurilingual competence truly matters: training our future generations to be able to navigate diverse cultural contexts with ease and confidence.
